Klopp says Liverpool have a “really tough job” ahead of Porto clash

SHOWS: PORTO, PORTUGAL (APRIL 16, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL COACH, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "Yeah, sometimes we are really good.

Let me say it like this; that's true.

Hopefully we can show it again and maybe I can understand a little bit why he said that (Porto coach Sergio Conceicao saying Liverpool are the best team in the world).

There are moments after we win the ball or moments before we win the ball or moments when we do some things and it looks really, really good that's the truth, but yeah, that's pretty much all.

Yeah, it's a compliment, probably.

Meant as a compliment, but we still know that we have a really tough job to do tomorrow and probably he said that as well, that he still believes in their chances and stuff like that.

Did he say that?

[JOURNALIST ANSWERING: He did.] Ah, OK then.

It's all good." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL COACH, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "Yeah, it's so far a very positive season, of course.

That's why we are here.

But we are not here to celebrate our situation.

We are actually here to go to the next round.

Because the season's not finished and in this competition we have to fight really hard.

Porto won all their home games so far." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL COACH, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "Yeah, late in the season most of the systems we played against - hopefully nothing can be really new for us.

So, we should be able to adapt to it, but on the other side, we have to play football ourselves and that's what we try to do.

That's what we've always done when we play away and we have to do here as well." STORY: Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp on Tuesday (April 16) said it is too early to celebrate his side's season because "the season's not finished" adding that they have a "really tough job to do tomorrow" as they face Porto in their Champions League quarter-final second leg.

Klopp said his team was in Porto to win and to qualify for the semi-finals.

Liverpool will defend a 2-0 lead from last week's first leg at the Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday (April 17).

Liverpool met Porto in the round of 16 last season, drawing the return 0-0 at Anfield after their runaway first-leg win.
